One of David Moore's favourite books was Poet's Camera, which he'd bought in 1948 and taken with him to London. In it was a Carl Sandburg poem entitled Fog, illustrated by a Bill Brandt photograph. In 1988, Moore recalled the words and thought they best described his life as an observer.
 
The fog comes
on little cat feet.
 
It sits looking
over harbour and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
